Last year, my clever sister made these pirate invitations:
The text reads:
‘AHOY THERE MATEY’S!
It has come to our attention that it is Captain Taide Blackbeard Winterton’s 7th birthday on the horizon, A NEW form of celebrations is on the go… Something that goes by the name of a DISCO!
Leave yer weapons on yer ships and get on down to the …. Village Hall on 10th November from 4-6pm if you dare!
There be a dress code of pirates and princesses…
Yer need to RSVP by no later than … by hollering Taide’s ma either by text or email
Hope to see ye there! ‘
Gah! I think it’s so cute!!! She tea-stained the papers and let them dry for a couple of days, then burnt the edges with a lighter (she almost burnt down her whole house doing this, but that’s a blog post for another day) then she printed them and rolled them up like scrolls tied up with a piece of string.
Pure genius (and cost effective too!)
If you like it, then you shoulda put a *pin* on it. *BURSTS INTO SONG*

Happy Monday All!
